Learning outcomes

At the end of the course the student will have gained an understanding for historical musicology as a discipline and as an approach within other disciplines.

Content

Historical musicology is a scholarly perspective that may be applied to all musical manifestations from all periods of history, including those from the present time. This study has continued to be a central tenet within the discipline of musicology, with a wide range of theoretical approaches and methodological tools. In this module we study a number of influential and central traditions, texts and theories from historical musicology, and their situation in wider intellectual contexts.
